The ballet Multiplicity. Forms of Silence and Emptiness is one of Nacho Duato’s best-known works. It immediately caught the attention of the critics and brought its creator the prestigious Benois de la Dance prize. The ballet was composed in 1999 for the theatre in Weimar, where Johann Sebastian Bach lived and worked for several years. It is Bach’s music that forms the basis of Duato’s work, in which he tells the story of the great composer’s life and work through the medium of eurhythmic dance.
